    Today we’re announcing System Ninja Pro; a commercial edition of System Ninja for more advanced users. We often receive feature requests from computer technicians, network administrators and IT professionals who need more specialized functionality.

    System Ninja Pro features a simplified interface alternative.

    The following features are included in the first release of System Ninja Pro:
    Simple Mode; which provides a one-click approach to cleaning a client’s PC.
    Custom Branding; which allows technicians to white-label the interface.
    Zero advertising; you won’t be offered any third party apps when installing.
    Commandline options; now you can run specific cleaning tasks over the commandline.
    Faster updates; you won’t have to visit our webpage to grab the latest version.
    System Notes; perfect for users who run System Ninja on many PCs and need to keep track of things.

    System Ninja Pro will be available exclusively through the new SingularLabs Pro Club. You can buy a one year subscription for $14.95, which includes all updates and support services for the duration of your subscription.

    JavaRa 2.5

    Apologies for releasing an update less than two weeks after JavaRa 2.4 was announced, but there was a number of serious issues that couldn’t wait until the next scheduled release. A Windows security update released in December affected JavaRa’s ability to access the Windows registry, effectively breaking its ability to identify and remove versions of the Java Runtime Environment on some systems.

    JavaRa 2.5 implements a more reliable method of accessing the registry, which has restored the Remove Java Runtime and Check JRE version functionality. Due to the time sensitive nature of this release, we have only tested it on Windows 7 x64 and Windows 8 x64. Users of other operating systems are encouraged to report issues in the JavaRa support forum.

    Furthermore, a change to the Oracle download servers prevented JavaRa from being able to download the latest version of the Java Runtime Environment directly from their website. In JavaRa 2.5 the JRE installer will be acquired from SingularLabs’ servers instead. We will be enabling this slowly to ensure we don’t overload our servers.

    The update is available from the usual download page. Sorry for the inconvenience.
